Belgium, 2016, 71 min. Director Flo Flamme.

In Cuba half a century ago, a revolution created a new frontier beyond which, little by little, the outside world became vaporous, invisible and forbidden. Now on the brink of opening its borders with the USA again, three old men, Luis, Carmelo, and Ernesto, let their imaginations roam. All around them buses full of tourists, ambassadors from a never-never land, come and go, triggering in the men a deep longing for vanished ideals: love, time and the places they have never seen. In the autumn of their lives, dreams and illusions take flight one last time.
